Persistence has paid off for farmer

Walder, L.S. (1977) Persistence has paid off for farmer. The New Mercury, 2 June 1977. p. 2 [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Letter to the editor feature from L.S. Walder to discuss the success of Brookton farmer, Mr. Harry Whittington and of his system of interceptor banks, which range from the highest point of the farm to the low lying flat portions where there is no surface runoff as the earth acts as a filter.
It has taken over 30 years of worry, concentration and hard work to achieve what Mr. Whittington considers a practical method to not only have his farm, but also to be a means of saving millions of hectares of similarly affected parts all over the state.
